maimed or crippled by bush's war. in 2002 before the war began, a young state senator named barack obama came out to oppose the invasion of iraq. at a time when few politicians on the left were showing that kind of courage. when he was running for president a few years later, he promised to end the iraq war, and in 2011, he did. >> as president, i want us to fight on the right battlefield. and what that means is getting out of iraq. >> the long war in iraq will come to an end by the end of this year. across america, our servicemen and women will be reunited with their families. today, i can say that our troops in iraq will definitely be home for the holidays. >> our troops are home. the iraq war is over. but today too many republicans haven't learned the lessons of this tragedy. dick cheney himself says he has no regrets. >> it is a wartime situation. it was more important to be successful than it was to be loved. if i had to do it over again, i would do it in a minute. >> and here's what a new republican congressman, a veteran considered a rising star in the party, said just last week.
challenges against proposition 8 and the defense of marriage act. >>> president obama is back home in the u.s. he was in israel, the west bank, and jordan. >>> secretary of state john kerry remains in the middle east including meeting with benjamin netanyahu. he urged iraqi leaders to overcome sectarian that threatens the stability. let's go to kristen welker. what is the president saying about the trip to the middle east? how are they characterizing this trip? >> reporter: hi, alex. officials believe he set out to do. he also reaffirmed the united states' commitment to the israeli people. the israeli people were skeptical about that prior to the trip. and then there was an unexpected diplomatic victory where president obama, through arm twisting, convinced netanyahu to call turkey and apologize for a deadly raid against a turkish ship. that will be key in moving forward with issues like syria and tries to reopen the peace process in the middle east. so i think white house officials are feeling good about the trip. the big question, if you talk to experts in the region, is what is president

is the name of the game in washington as president obama and republicans seek an illusive middle ground on spending and taxes. so far, the game is not going very well. >> is the grand bargain dead? >> i don't know whether we can come to a big agreement. the president believes that we have to have more taxes from the american people. we're not going to get very far. >> the president has sounded equally pessimistic about bridging the divide. >> it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue, or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or gut medicaid, if that's the position, then we're probably not going to be able to get a deal. >> while there's not much agreement there are plenty of ideas. washington is awash in budgets. no less than six plans are currently circulating on the hill. there is the plan from senate democrats, or the murray plan. it includes a one-to-one ratio of spending cuts and tax increaseses, as well as short-term stimulus. then there's the house democrats' budget, which pushes for $200 billion more

that oppose it. >> 45%. >> that's pretty good. when if you asked about obama care or something like that. >> republicans have learned that while these folks who were undocumented can't vote their kids who are born here are becoming citizens are voting and not voting for republicans and at the same time that poll shows the people are way ahead of the politicians on this one. they are ready for this. they want it. they want to see the system work. so they want a pragmatic approach and there's a really good political and pragmatic sweet spot we can hit if we work it the right way. >> it's a small spot. i don't think we should -- having covered the complexity there's a lot of moving pieces when people talk about what the enforcement part of it will be. hat the current pathway to citizenship will look like. that pathway will have a number of hurdles. you can build eight foot hurdles or two foot and some will run smack dab into that. >> tough, smart and fair. >> the fact that the country does immigration reform doesn't mean immigration reform is good and the fact that it's bipartisan doesn't m
